6 Minutes with the Make Noise XPO

video upload by Brett Naucke


This is NOT a comprehensive demo of this module, rather a quick exploration of the XPO under heavy modulation, doing the things I've enjoyed with it the most over the past few months of using it with the Maths + Qpas.

The first segment uses shows the L doing PWM and R channel doing waveshaping. The 2nd segment shows dual wavefolding, sync in, and center modulation and the wild places this will take you.

Patch Notes:
Maths Ch 1 & Ch 2 Outputs to L & R XPO inputs
Maths Ch 1 & 2 EOR/EOC to Qpas L & R Inputs.
Maths SUM Out to Qpas Cv In

2nd Part
2 free LFOs modulate both Maths Channels
Frap Tools Brenso 'Final' output into Sync input.

Again, no demo by any means, just the low/wild/growls that this thing does on its own. The XPO really does often sound like multiple osc's. One of the best analog oscs ever made and it's stereo functions are 100% unique to it.

Moog Mavis review and comparison to other synths

video upload by Molten Music Technology

"The Moog Mavis is nice but expensive for its feature set. Is it worth the money considering what else is available for similar or less? In this video I give the Mavis a good going over and then compare it to some other synths - are there better choices out there?

Sequential Prophet Rev 2 - Bi-timbral Sound Bank

video upload by Polydata

"An exploration of stacked patches with the Sequential / Dave Smith Instruments Prophet Rev 2. I've often found bi-timbral patches cheesy, uninspiring, or just not useful. I sought to create this bank to show how powerful and beautiful patch stacking can be. It needs to be approached with care - not just slapping two sounds together, but carefully tailoring each sound to complement each other and blend into a single unit that is greater than the sum of it's parts. Nuance is key.

30 carefully designed bi-timbral patches for instant inspiration. Recorded completely dry with no external effects or processing.

WLK-Audio - Inductive Filter Bank

video upload by SchneidersLaden

"Some minutes with the Inductive Filter Bank from WLK-Audio: This device is for those of you who want to get a special sound-shaping tool for their studio - a high-quality and meticulously developed tool for sound design and fine-tuning work alike.

The filter bank is based on discrete coil technology and offers a very elegant overdrive behavior with that has a wonderful character and saturation. It is simply a pleasure to saturate any audio signal with the filter bank because the output signal never becomes obtrusive or annoying. The frequency specific distortion is a specialty of this unit. All in all it's a great tool for high-quality sound refinement, sound design, saturation and - if you want - the possibility to create a great vintage lo-fi sound."

"WLK-Audio – Inductive Filter Bank"

The Inductive Filter Bank from WLK-Audio, is for those of you who want to get a special classic into the studio - a high-quality and meticulously developed tool for sound design and fine-tuning work alike.

This filterbank is the mono version, of the Extended Range Fixed Filterbank from the same manufacturer. Both take their cues from SND's rare classic, the FB 14 Mono Filterbank, which is based on discrete coil technology. However, the WLK engineers have not simply copied, but thought ahead and now deliver us a filterbank with outstandingly clear sound and very elegant overdrive behavior which allows for overdriving without loss of character.

The carefully chosen frequency bands allow consistently good results, with which "musical" tweaks in your sounds are an easy task. These are at:

35Hz, 65Hz, 105Hz, 160Hz, 240Hz, 360Hz, 540Hz, 800Hz, 1.2KHz, 1.8KHz, 2.7KHz, 4KHz, 7KHz, 12KHz.

The hand-wound coils impress with the highest quality and are not only good for refining your sounds, but allow extreme, frequency-specific distortion without "squashing" the sound - instead clear and direct.

Compared to the FB 14, the WLK filter bank is a lot creamier in the treble range and a little less harsh overall.

It is worth trying the Inductive Filter Bank and convince yourself of the sound.

Resonant Space Performance Snippet | Knobcon X | Afternoon Abstract | 2022

video upload by Poorness Studios

"This was one of my favorite performances from Knobcon X this past weekend. Resonant Space performed as part of the Afternoon Abstract on Saturday September 10. This entire show was composed and performed with quadraphonic sound. Unfortunately, the camera cannot capture it in the same way it sounded live."

DROID - Universal CV Processor

video uploads by Der Mann mit der Maschine

"This video introduces my new Eurorack synthesizer module "DROID". The DROID is a universal CV processor, that can do anything in your modular synth... except audio! The DROID has 8 CV inputs and 8 CV outputs and you can use them to implement lots of different utility functions, even at the same time. You can implement sequencers, quantizers, clock dividers and multipliers, trigger delays, precision adders, ADSR like envelope generators, random generators, turing machines, slew limiters, CV mixers, CV matrix mixers and many many more things."

The eurorack module that can do everything with CV – Introduction to Droid

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"Droid – the Universal CV Processor – can basically do everything when it comes to control voltages. It can create modulation signals like complex LFOs and envelopes. Perform creative utilitarian functions like mixing, logic, quantizing, and so on. And it can do complex pattern and melodic sequencing. This gives you the power to create your own complex modules, or even entire custom control surfaces for performances.

I have been using it for a couple of months now, and in this video I explain how it works, and how it can be used. At least, I made a start, because the possibilities are basically endless!"

Music: NightRadio - Polar Radio (2005)
Full discography:

PsyTexx is the first Amiga MOD-based player and tracker for PalmOS. It includes a 12-channel sampler and pattern editor with support for non-standard audio effects (echo,filter,distortion,etc.).
This is one of my first music apps before I started creating SunVox.
The 'Warm Place' album was written from scratch using PsyTexx on this device in 2005."

u-he More Feedback Machine 2.5 Patch Flip - Sonic LAB

MFM2: More Feedback Machine

MFM2 is our over-the-top digital delay plug-in. You can create anything from subtle textured echos to huge spacey reverbs, from wild tonal steps on a pad to rhythmic deconstruction of a drum track. As a regular delay MFM2 already offers as much control and inspiration as possible, while the advanced features in version 2.5 open up wider horizons. More feedback, more control, more inspiration!

New in version 2.5:
input section with gain, filter and transient balance
4 delay lines with independent absolute time or tempo-synced modes
Each delay line has its own multimode filter: 2x lowpass, bandpass, 2x highpass, bandreject or allpass
6 default delay configurations or user matrix (freely route signals between all 4 delay lines)
4 syncable LFOs with 8 waveform options or user definable shapes
2 syncable and loopable multi-stage envelope generator (MSEG) modulation sources
4-slot modulation matrix with depth modulation from a second source
2 channel-pair effects: soft clipper, bit crusher, phaser, frequency shifter, filter...
New in version 2.5: granular (pitch shift, reverse delays) and diffusor (reverb)
2 channel-pair compressor/limiters, with peak or maximize modes
New in version 2.5: output shield (soft clipper) with strength and threshold options
Scalable UI from 70% to 200%
400+ factory presets

Future Sound Systems: FIL3 and FIL4 dirty filters compared

video upload by John Schussler

"Future Sound Systems isn't known for making polite modules. Their original claim to fame was a Eurorack version of the Gristelizer, and surely the name alone is enough to tell you what it sounded like.

These two modules are both filters (though not part of the Gristleizer line). The FIL3 Spectral Devastator is two filters in series (unless you decide otherwise), whereas the FIL4 Timbral Sculptor is a single filter with a couple wave folders and a rectifier in the signal chain (again, unless you decide otherwise).

I suppose you can maybe make things sound 'nice' with these, but mostly I'm trying to decide which one creates a more visceral rip, tear, and shred for the hp it takes up.

Input audio was a basic sine wave from a Dixie II+. Sequenced by Stochastic IG. Envelope by Zadar.
